Maritime Watercolour Canvey Island
Currently for sale on ebay is this lovely watercolour dated c1880-1900. The current owner, Craig (whydontyoubuyit) has given us permission to feature it on the archive. This is his description.
‘On back of a board on the old frame it states ” View of Canvey Island “. The watercolour itself could well be an image of a ” Stacky Barge ” which were a common site at Canvey Island with it’s 12 / 15 stack of hay for the stables of London and the Home Counties.’
On the reverse it states ” Bacon 240 Seal Road 7 Oaks “
